With 54,392 people, Jackson, New Jersey is a relatively small city. Unfortunately, there is only one nursing home there. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a strong overall grade of B+. We also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Princeton. We found the facility in Jackson to be rated much higher than most of the facilities in Princeton. The best part of this facility's impressive report card is its inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this city's lone nursing home really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few places earned a better grade in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This nursing home also performed especially well in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it an A-. Wrapping up its profile, Jackson received grades of B+ and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. For the most part, this city's category grades were very strong, but this weak nursing score may indicate lower levels of nurse staffing.
